Echeveria elegans and Echeveria elegans crest

One of the classic echeverias is Echeveria elegans, easy to grow and still always impressive and striking. Sometimes called the "Mexican Snowball" or the "Mexican Gem", the top picture shows the normal plant and the bottom picture shows a crest, in this case over 20 cm. across.
The plants are native to the Chihuahuan-Tehuacan desert area of Northern Mexico.
Enjoy your plants.

    que tengas un lindo fin de semana.
